Talk by Professor Victoria Stodden, Department of Statistics, Columbia University. The talk was given at UC Berkeley.
Large-scale sequencing projects paved the way for the adoption of pioneering open data policies, making bioinformatics one the leading fields for data availability and access. In this talk I will trace the history of open data in -omics based research, and discuss how open code as well are data are being addressed today. This will include discussing leading edge tools and computational infrastructure developments intended to facilitate reproducible research through workflow tracking, computational environments, and data and code sharing.
